My name is Laz, a medical massage therapist. I had worked for 5 years in a chiropractor’s office where I treated over 1,000 patients a year with disc herniation, frozen shoulder, thoracic outlet syndrome, whiplash accident injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome, cubital tunnel syndrome lateral/medial epicondylitis and many more. I am also an experienced deep tissue, sport, Swedish, myofascial manipulation and proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation.



I have graduated from NOVA Medical Massage Therapy School where I studied anatomy, physiology and kinesiology for 5 years. I have done my extensive final case study about sciatic pain management and lumbar disc herniation. In addition to that I took a Registered Nurse course for 4 semesters at Germanna College, furthermore was an instructor of medical massage practical application, anatomy, pathology and patient assessment in Columbia College.



I have a great reputation from Washington, D.C. to Richmond, getting referrals from chiropractors, physical therapists, doctor’s offices and hospitals. I rehabilitate patients after an injury and those who suffer in chronic pain. I also improve the performance of athletes and prevent future injury.



I also have over 10 years of experience of training competitive athletes.

Great first experience with Laz. He was able to diagnose my issue within seconds of talking to me and quickly got to work. The work was painful, but productive. When I left he had solid recommendations for stretching and strengthening to help me be part of my own recovery.

I appreciated the time that Laszlo took to explain what he felt was the source of my pain. This first appointment was wonderful and I look forward to the next opportunity. Thank you.

Laz does wonders with his massage and explains the muscle problems you may have better than any doctor I have seen.
by Robert on Jan 18
Laz was very knowledgable and explained through the procedure what he was doing and why. He also took time afterwards to explain in greater detail the nature of the problem and what it would take to correct it. I will be returning.

Las is simply the best massage therapist I’ve ever had. He really knows his stuff! I always leave feeling amazing! I don’t need to tell him where I’m tight because he feels it and releases it. Very talented.

Laz was amazing educating me and discussing a plan of treatment. I felt totally at ease with him. He really cares about his clients.
